Super Force is an American action-adventure TV series which aired from October 1990 to May 1992.

Syndicated by Viacom, Super Force was designed to be a companion series to Superboy, and the second series in a proposed two-hour block of action programming that also included Lightning Force. Unusual for a series that only ran 30 minutes per episode, Super Force debuted with a two-hour TV pilot film, which was later split into four episodes for syndication purposes.

Plot summary

Super Force Television Commercials Robert Short

Astronaut Zachary Stone (Ken Olandt) returns from his acclaimed deep-space mission to Mars to find that his brother, a police officer, has been murdered and the criminals responsible are still at large. Frustrated at the seeming lack of concern or progress by the police, Zach takes it upon himself to find the killer(s) and bring them to justice, joining the Metroplex Police Department as a detective.

After his first failed attempt almost leads to his death in the Metroplex "Crime Zone," Zach is approached by F.X. Spinner (Larry B. Scott), a research scientist at Hungerford Industries who has developed a prototype suit of space armor that will never be used due to lack of funding. After the murder of Hungerford Industries founder E. B. Hungerford (Patrick Macnee), also a close friend of the Stone family, Zach convinces F.X. to modify the suit for combat purposes. Combined with a prototype motorcycle, the two form the backbone of the vigilante crime-fighting team called "Super Force," ably assisted by the Hungerford Computer (voiced by Macnee), an artificial intelligence computer created from a blend of Hungerford's personal records, psychological profile and company files.

During Season Two, Zach added limited psychic powers to his crime-fighting repertoire, the result of his near-death experience in the final episode of Season One. Also joining the Super Force team that season was Esper Division police officer Zander Tyler (Musetta Vander).

The Super Force suit was created and built by Robert Short, who also created the red suit worn by John Wesley Shipp in the live-action TV series The Flash. A recurring villain in Season One, Satori, was played by G. Gordon Liddy, the man made famous for planning the Watergate break.


  • Zach Stone - The main protagonist. A former astronaut, Zach has taken his (supposedly) deceased brother's place on the police force. But due to the increasingly violent crimes and the slow progress of police work, Zach becomes Super Force. As Super Force, Zach's armor increases his physical strength, surrounds him with a force field, allows him to see at telescopic ranges, and can fire an energy beam from the visual enhancement device on the helmet. In the second season, he gains minor pyshic talents.
  • FX Spinner - A former gang member given a second chance, FX is the brains of the teams. On occasion, FX even gets into the field himself, such as once dressing up in the Super Force armor to free Zach from brainwashing, or going undercover in an amusement park with a dark secret. In the episode "Yo! Super Force!", it's revealed that he has three cousins who also work as undercover agents.
  • E.B. Hungerford - The head of Hungerford Industries and Zach's one-time mentor, E.B. is killed in the first quarter of the pilot movie. However, he lives on as a computer simulation which has access to his company's files, and can enter other computer systems.
  • Villains

  • Tao Satori - The main villain of the series. Similar to the post-Crisis Lex Luthor, Satori poses as a great humanitarian, but is secretly a ruthless criminal mastermind. It's because of him that Super Force exists, and many of the show's episodes involve a plot of his. Styling himself in a Japanese lifestyle, Satori's men usually refer to him as "oyabun", the Japanese word for godfather.
